Back in the late 60s I had my first introduction to surf photography. In the school library was a book titled “A Pictorial History of Surfing”. Inside was packed with Jack Edens classic surf shots. His images inspired me to buy my own gear and set out on my own surf photo addiction and 50 years later im still obsessed. Thanks Jack your work inspired me and countless other photographers and it was sad to hear of your passing. You’ve left us with a treasure chest of iconic surf images which will now last on forever. Jack you are a legend RIP.
